Well this is what Phil thought when Miles Davis' Bitches Brew band played support to the Dead in 1970:

"I was thinking, 'What's the use? How can we possibly play after this? We should just go home and try to digest this unbelievable shit.' This was our first encounter with Miles' new direction... In some ways, it was similar to what we were trying to do in our free jamming, but ever so much more dense with ideas, and seemingly controlled with an iron first, even at its most alarmingly intense moments."

Respect your elders! Reminds me of reading about the Rolling Stones first American adventures. They were in this tour thing called the TAMI shows and were supposed to follow James Brown. I've read that the Stones watched from back stage and Mick Jagger was shaking with fear when they went on.
